HAMPTON, Va. — An airman at Langley Air Force Base has been found guilty in military court of sexually assaulting a colleague.
The Virginian-Pilot reported Saturday that Airman Adam M. Rodela was convicted at a court-martial of touching the genitals of a female airman without her consent.
He was sentenced to a year in confinement, a reprimand and a reduction in rank.
National Guard members speak out after they say their chains of command bungled their sexual assault investigations and retaliated against them for seeking justice.
Military officials released few other details.
Rodela is assigned to Langley’s 1st Operations Support Squadron. He entered the service in 2018.
